I was out jogging yesterday and briefly watched as I went past Hillside elementary school in Tredyffrin Easttown School District,(T/E) as they were watering their roofs. I realized that the roofs are green and this is an interesting step for the local school district to reduce costs and teach students about the environment as well.
The local paper, The Wayne and Suburban Times has an interesting article with photographs that you can view.
Green elements are growing in our area, with many residential homes being fitted with geo-thermal heating and cooling units, solar panels, new energy star appliances, newer windows and doors all reducing costs over time for the homewowners and helping out our environment at the same time. But I applaud the local Tredyffrin Easttown school district to take this step on one of their buildings and be such a good example to the community.
